Reviews for The Elite
Fantastic follow up novel!
The Elite delivered exactly what I wanted in the second book of the Selection series. There's more drama, more love triangles and more gorgeous gowns fit for a princess-to-be. America Singer is still in the middle working out her feelings regarding her two admirers - Crown Prince Maxon and her childhood sweetheart now Palace guard, Aspen. Every time she thinks she's decided which way her heart is leading her something happens and makes her feel mixed up all over again. Maxon only has six girls left in The Selection and where America was once comfortable regarding his feelings towards the other girls she's now anxious and more jealous than she ever though she'd feel. Emotions are running strong. Marlee is still acting oddly, Celeste has more nasty tricks up her sleeve and the King weighs in with who he think Maxon should pick...
The first half of this novel doesn't have much regarding the dystopian aspect of this book but the second half ramps up and delivers some much-anticipated action. The rebels are back and the threat to the crown and country. The remaining girls from the Selection get more time to show who they are as people as well as learning the importance and responsibility of being Maxon's wife. America is still a little too amazing for my liking - being a hero to the people and the funniest girl in the Selection - but more of her flaws came out as this series is developing. The love triangles are a little overwhelming at times with America deciding on one of her men and then being adamant that it's the other one she's meant to be with. And then another flip-flop in her decision a few pages later.
For the Bachelor fans - there's still quite a bit in this book for you! Extravagant balls, a bit of scandal and scheming competitors are still in the mix and feel like they'd be right at home on the show. Whilst the Bachelor aspect is what drew me to this series, I've grown attached to the characters and unique drama Kiera Cass has brought to her story. I can not wait to read The One and find out who America chooses and which of the remaining contestants will be Maxon's bride - along with just how much more damage the rebels will inflict. by Kate @ whYAnot Reviews
